International Children's Book Day - 2nd April 2017

International Children's Book Day is celebrated annually on 2nd April to coincide with Hans Christian Andersen's birthday. Hans Christian Andersen was a well known Danish children's author best known for writing fairy tales such as The Little Mermaid and The Ugly Duckling. This day is a time to share a love of reading with children and to show the importance of children's books.

The JCU Library Curriculum Collection has a great range of children's and young adult books for you to borrow. The Curriculum Collection is a model school library, which is designed to hold books suitable for students from K-12, as well as teacher resources like textbooks and kits. All of the books in the Curriculum Collection are available for loan - and you don't have to be an Education student to borrow them. In fact, it can be one of the best places to find a book to read (for fun), as it's much easier to browse than the literature section.
